DealHub (Option Computers Ltd) announced today that it will open a new office in Singapore to support growing demand for its FX trading solutions in the region.

The move marks the return of previous DealHub Sales and Marketing Head, Tim Finch, who left the company in April this year to take up a position as Sales Director for FXCM Pro, based in Hong Kong.  Commenting on Finch’s appointment as Regional Director, Asia, Dealhub CEO Peter Kriskinans said, “Asia is where the fastest growth is right now – in the global economy and in the FX market – and we’re seeing ever growing interest in our solutions from customers in the region. As a result, it’s become increasingly clear that we need to expand our physical presence in Asia-Pacific – and I’m delighted we could persuade Tim to re-join the team and lead this critical part of our growth strategy.”

Commenting on his new role, Finch said, “I’m really excited to return to the team in this pivotal role – the opportunities in the region are huge and the Dealhub roadmap for 2012 is looking very strong.”

Finch will lead the set-up of a new office in Singapore, aided by another key strategic hire, Jay Lim, who will lead business and product development in the region. Lim has held senior positions in Sales, Trading and eCommerce at ABN AMRO and other firms in Asia Pacific and is currently a Technical Adviser to the China Foreign Exchange Trade System (CFETS). He will focus on developing Dealhub’s eCommerce solutions for the fast-growing Asia region.

To complete the new Asia management team, Dealhub’s Oliver Cronin will relocate from New Zealand to Singapore, continuing his existing role as Head of Client Services, Asia Pacific.

This announcement follows Dealhub’s recent launch of ultra-low latency hosted services in London and New York and confirms plans to expand these services with a hosting location in Asia, ensuring global, high-speed trading connectivity for all Dealhub customers.
